NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill Review

NordicTrack 1750 TreadmillTreadmill Overview:

If you’re looking for a great commercial-grade treadmill for home use, the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill is tough to beat in this price range. Driven by a large, commercial-grade 3.6 CHP motor, the Commercial 1750 Treadmill can reach top speeds of 12 mph. You can also adjust the deck from a 3% decline up to a 15% incline. That’s a feature you’re not going to find on many treadmills, unless you’re willing to spend twice what you will for a NordicTrack treadmill.
The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill also comes with a lot of modern conveniences. It has an iPod-compatible sound system with two large 3” speakers, dual fans, tablet holder, and one-touch speed and incline settings. The console is a large 7” HD screen packed with 38 programmed workouts and it is also iFit compatible. With iFit Coach Plus and Google Maps, your workout possibilities are endless. The new iFit Coach Plus even comes with nutrition and sleep guidance.

The running surface on the 1750 is roomy and very comfortable. At NordicTrack 1750 Treadmill22”x60”, this running surface will accommodate runners of all sizes. The deck itself uses a soft cushioning system that is easy on the joints, but it can also be set to a more firm surface if you like the feel of road running. NordicTrack backs all of this behind an excellent lifetime frame and motor warranty. With the new NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill you’re getting a top of the line machine that will last a lifetime.

UPDATE (1/30/18): NordicTrack has now made iFit membership OPTIONAL on the 1750 Treadmill (pre-2018 version). Now you can choose if you want that option or are fine with doing your own workouts. Click below to check:

What We Love About the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill:

Running Experience

First, the running surface on the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill is huge. At 22”x60” this running surface will fit anyone’s stride. Generally’ in this price range, you’ll find most of the competition around 20”x60”. You’d be surprised by how much room for error is provided in the extra 2” of width. Another really nice feature of this running surface is the technology that NordicTrack uses. They equipped the Commercial 1750 with the FlexSelect Cushioning system. Explained simply, this running surface is adjustable. So it can be soft enough to take stress off of the knees, ankles and joints or it can be hard to replicate actual road running. It’s a unique feature found on higher end NordicTrack treadmills. Finally, this treadmill has a very strong 3.6 CHP DurX Commercial Plus motor that can provide speeds up to 12 mph, incline up to 15% and decline to 3%. Again, these are features you’ll find on high end NordicTrack treadmills, but not on the competition.

Console

The console on the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill has everything you’ll need for an enjoyable workout. The screen is a large 7” HD touchscreen display. This console comes loaded with 38 programmed workouts that will have you burning calories and losing fat in no time at all. If that’s not enough, it is also equipped with iFit, which along with GoogleMapsTM provides you unlimited workout possibilities. You can road running routes from across the world and watch the scenery fly by on the console.

Other Considerations:

Weight Capacity

The biggest drawback of the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill is its weight capacity. At only 300 lbs, NordicTrack is leaving a lot of potential users high and dry. It’s hard to believe that this treadmill only has a 300 lb weight capacity. This treadmill is well built and comes with a large 3.6 CHP commercial-grade motor that should be able to easily run with heavier users. The competition in this price range will provide weight capacities up to 350 lbs and with some good research, you can probably find some even higher. For example, check out our review of the SOLE Fitness F80 Treadmill.

Final Word on the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill:

If you’re in the market for a commercial grade treadmill, the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill is a great choice.Our only concern is that with only a 300 lb weight capacity, NordicTrack is not catering to all of the potential users of this treadmill.  That said, with a large motor and premium components, this treadmill is going to last a lifetime. The 1750 treadmill will provide you with a unique workout fit to your fitness level with numerous speed, incline and decline settings, as well as tons of programmed workout possibilities.  Rated 98/100.

NOTE: NordicTrack has made the iFit membership optional on last year’s 1750. Check it out here:
